Jushin Liger vs Virus
Korakuen Hall, Tokyo, Japan
(reviewed live) Lowkey dream match here, and I wonder how long it can really go being only third on the card. Still, high expectations. OH GOD NO, TIGER HATTORI IS REFFING, WHAT IF THE WORST HAPPENS. Old man lucha graps are alive and well with this match, god bless. Not too much to write about without going into too much detail, sadly, but still, this match is a barrel of sweaty man on man action fun. There’s a fun spot where Virus goes for a punch, but Liger stops him and admonishes him, knowing there’s no closed fist punches, and Virus backs down. Liger goes for a palm strike immediately afterwards, and Virus stops him and admonishes him. Ends with a cool series of reversals into a rocking horse. Great old man lucha grapplefucking. Check this out if you’re a fun of the style, or a fan of fun.
